of religion that they were pushing by the federal government. federal reserve. it a monster then and now. when the country was created in 1776 up to the time of the federal reserve. the value of the dollar went up. and since the federal reserve it is down 92 percent. they crank out free money. >> thanks for the pick me up, judge. federal income tax. >> the federal income tax. money is the mother's milk of politicings. under wilson and roosevelt they taxed incomes and it gave the federal government an unending spickot of cash and started the bloating bercracy. >> gretchen: and end with regulation and we know what they are . they are abundant. good luck on the book. >> i am taking a break for a year. >> gretchen: you deserve it. check out the new book. >> gretchen: he had his sites set on president obama. he was convicted in a botched bomb plot . darth vader really his dad home from war. >> yeah. it is. daddy. i told him, sure. can't hurt, right? then i heard this news about a multivitamin study looking at long-term health benefits for men over 50. the one they used in that study... centrum silv
with our long history and pluralization of american religions. >> so tell us a bit about that history. why is it okay to joke about jesus but not other religious figures? >> the sacred is much more in contest here in part because of our legacy of religious freedom, but in part because we've had a long history of conflict over sacred imagery and words, often violent conflict. and in more recent years because of the rise of secularism, because of the rise of the culture of mockery in part, as well. it's just become more acceptable. >> is it because more and more of us are agnostic? i mean, why is it? is it -- do we still believe in jesus yet we joke about him? is it the other way around? >> well, it's funny if you read the comments on our cnn belief blog, you'll see that people are engaging in arguments with each other saying our argument has but humor is the way we deal with these kinds of conflicts. and as we say in the piece, in part, it's our way we don't kill each other. >> well, interestingly, i was talking to one of the employees here at cnn, kathy, and she said her minister, she belo
progressive, barack obama, who doesn't really share their values about religion -- well, i can't say family because obama is a good family man and he puts forth a good example there. he doesn't make it a cause. certainly he doesn't challenge the abortion zealots. he seems to be opposed socially from most in the hispanic community. yet, romney never went there at all. >> romney never went anywhere at all. what romney did and he had that one great night in the first debate. and that brought him back into the race and put him ahead, in fact, what romney decided at that point was he is going to run on the economy on stewardship and he could coast to victory. and remarkably, if you look at the exit polls, a majority or a plurality of americans thought the economy was improving on election day. when your whole strategy is to run saying he he had a chance to run the economy he failed and now i know how to do it because that's the path of least resistance. that's the path where you can make the argument without trying. when the numbers switch on you perception of the economy changes you have got no
treat the vulnerable. but i think this partisan manipulation of religion, i'm an evangelical and what's clear now is that evangelical will no longer mean white evangelical and franklin graham has to get used to that. evangelical is hispanic, african-americans, asians, didn't vote the way he did this time by a large majority. so we brought other issues into the election like how we treat the poor, how we treat the environment, how we welcome strangers. you in evangelicals last week writing the president last week saying how we treat the immigrant undocumented people is for us a biblical issue. we're going to write them again this week, the president and say who are serving the poor at christmastime and thanksgiving we're involved in that. those of us who are doing that are going to say to our members of congress don't make decisions that make the poor poorer and make our work harder. so you might say we're doing turkey baskets for the poor than baskets of letters to our some of our turkeys who represent us in congress. >> the moral majority for so longing had sway with partisan sway. d
: they were talking about religion on the last show, and i just wanted to make a comment. it seems that all the republican ministers, you know, like the evangelical people their ministers are more like glenn beck, what they were taught. they probably had ministers like glenn beck in their churches. i'm lutheran so i just had a pastor like a regular he didn't do anything but read out of the bible. he didn't act like glen we glenn beck. if you're raised you don't know the difference. but people who have religious parents that are taught in the traditional way from their grandparents are different than born again people. >> stephanie: i don't much-- >> caller: either you have parents, grandparents or great grandparents who taught you or a minister you don't know anything about religion, and you have glenn beck. >> stephanie: i don't know much about lutherism except you have great hot dishes. >> caller: it's your traditional catholic or traditional methodist, it's all from catholic. i'm swedish. >> i'm practiceing catholic. i practiced so good i'm not practicing any more. >> that's easy to do o
. the menorah and hanukkah display. but santa monica said pox on all of your houses and religion goes out out of the windo and we'll not allow the first amendment and as a result in the public square, christian and jewish symbols will not be allowed to be display in santa monica. they will go to court to stop it and the war on christmas has begun. we'll watch this case closely. it is an important one. people want to see. >> steve: it is and too bad that the tradition. >> it was a wonderful thing to see and disappointing that it is going by the boards. >> steve: thank you for joining us. enjoy your thanksgiving. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, the statute was posed to honor pope john ii, why did it look more like mussolina. he's suing his brother's groomsman. those stories straight ahead. come on, guys. ♪ ♪ great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more pcessed flakes look nothing like natural grains. i'm eating what i kn is better nutrition. mmmm. great grains. search great grains and see for yourself. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than
for help. our religion correspondent, lauren green, is live with this story. >> hi, jenna. as you said,ouses of worship are supposed to be sanctuaries for the broken hearted, but countless are in great need of healing themselves. the repair work as begun at all saints in bayhead, new jersey, but the road ahead is wrong. the historic structure was built in the late 1800s and designed by boat builders but was never meant to withstand the surge from dirty bay water that sandy brought. >> if it had been just the ocean water, it would have been a lot cleaner, but because it was the bay water and the ditch, it threw the mud in as well and caused more damage than if it had been just purely clean sea water. >> reporter: now, sandy was an equal opportunity destroyer. at western synagogue in queens, new york, the rabbi surveys the damage. the storm put the entire neighborhood and temple under at least four feet of water. the once-pristine sanctuary now has buckling floors, the holy books are unusable, but because of their religious content they cannot be burned, so they sit covered outdoors awai
a weird thing as a muslim to have my religion used as a way to delegitimatize the president. you know? yeah, this play sort of deals with a lot of that stuff. it's a very brave, provocative piece of theater, and i was very excited about it. >> why did you take on this role, because it is so different than what you normally do? >> well, i'm an actor, so i have been doing dramatic stuff and comedic stuff my whole career. ever since i played that pixie in the school play. thank god people know about that now. >> roll the tape. where is that? >> there probably is somewhere. i've been doing both my whole career, so, know, the last six or seven years i have been on "the daily show" and people know me as that guy, that comedian guy, but for me to go do dramatic stuff is not that much of a stretch. i have been doing it a lot. >> when you saw how the election turned out and we have heard from mitt romney very recently saying that, look, he thought the reason obama won says was because he thought there were gifts he was giving out to african-americans, to latino, to young people. >> cars and th
respect to religion because i know that you're a very religious person and do you feel that god has a plan for you. >> yes. the gentleman who ran against me was told by god -- and people would say well, you know, you're theologically trained, you can probably slice him to pieces. my response was any time anybody says they were told by god to do something, i leave it alone. you know. i would say that sometimes the voice of god we hear is our own voice in disguise. and so i'm -- but at the same time i'm careful about saying well, why would god talk to you? you only have a bachelor's degree or you only -- and it was in geography. but i think we leave that alone. now i don't think that we have to manufacture a god discussion and i became really angry with many democrats saying we've got to start talking about god. my response is god will not be pimped. are we going to talk about him so we can impress some people who believe that -- say the word "god." called the name "god." i can't do that. i think in the course of who we are
their television show. he's very interested in religion, he's very interested in faith, and even though he did not remain a mormon for his entire life -- it was just as a child, he returned to the catholic church -- it will always be a part of this sort of complex faith journey, as he calls it. religion's complicated, and his religious story is complicated too. not because of just catholicism and mormonism, but also because he had joined a protestant/evangelical church that his wife and her family participated in. so he's dabbled with a lot of religious practices. >> host: does he attend church today, and if so, where? >> guest: he says that when he's in washington, he attends catholic mass every single day when he can. >> host: do you know which? ing the yeah, there's a catholic church just a few steps away from his office on capitol hill. it's very easy to get to for him. but when he's here in miami, he lives in west miami, a suburb of miami proper. he attends another church called christ fellowship, and that is an evangelical/protestant-based faith which is a part of the southern baptist co
see political risk to things like fracking coming down? do politicians get religion here? >> i think they already have. certainly if politicians haven't, voters have. we need to look at the results in new york state in some of the local state elections where anti-fracking candidates were defeated very resoundingly. in areas where natural gas and associated gas liquids and even oil can be extracted through the fracking process, more and more you're going to see residents, homeowners, property owners speaking their mind saying this is a resource we want to see exploited not only for ourselves but for the nation and for our own energy independence. >> if this report comes true, does that mean that nat gas prices are destined to remain historically low? >> yes and no. natural gas until we get a sufficient pipeline infrastructure built out to handle some of the swings that we see in certain pockets and i think particularly in the northeast, you know, you're still going to see temporary price spikes. your thesis is correct and your question is correct in that longer term we have sufficient
york. >> john: it was terrible. it is not a popular believe but my religion teaches me that hurricanes are god's punishment for pat robertson. and we had kind of a weird experience. i lived in greenwich village my whole life. i just moved uptown. i have a baby and i can't live in my shoe box anymore. my place is very, very small. the anne frank family was like "can we see something else"? we moved uptown and thought we had dodged the hurricane because we didn't lose power. i had all of the upper westside guilt. it was amazing because all of manhattan, they closed off all of the bridges and tunnels. manhattan was isolated from the rest of america which is how people of manhattan already view themselves. then i had a flood in my place downtown after the hurricane and then my storage unit was flooded with four feets of hudson river sewage water. >> oh! >> john: i would like to invite all of you climate change deniers to come and help me get the sewage smell out of my winter clothes because man there was som
